Show Full Description

Join author and performer extraordinaire Eric Litwin (Pete the Cat, The Nuts) at our annual Spring Fling celebration.


Hazel Nut and Wally Nut's playtime roll down a muddy hill turns into a hilarious chase when they get covered in so much muck that they get bigger...and bigger...until they're big as ELEPHANTS! Can anyone help get the Nuts back down to size? Eric Litwin offers an upbeat and inspiring message: What do you do when you roll into trouble? Keep rolling!


Also part of our story hour is the third book in Elise Parsley’s bestselling Magnolia Says Don’t series, If You Want to Bring a Circus to the Library, Don’t.


If you see a poster that says, "You Can Do Anything at the Library!" it means you can read, or do research, or meet some friends. It is not giving you permission to put on a circus. But Magnolia doesn't see any problem with setting up her own big top. She's got a lot of gusto and one mean human cannonball routine. So what if her greatest show on earth won't fit between bookshelves? Elise Parsley's boldly expressive illustrations fit perfectly with a humorous warning in this mostly-librarian-approved guide on how to be everything but quiet in the library!


Eric Litwin is the author of The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House, The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka-Dot Pants, the first four beloved and bestselling Pete the Cat books, and the Groovy Joe series. He is also a seasoned children's performer.


Elise Parsley has also written and illustrated If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, Don't! and the bestselling If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!, which was her debut picture book.
